Congratulations to the Cowboys on a huge upset win on Saturday. Down 10 in the second quarter, the team clawed back to make the game close. They scored two touchdowns in the last 1:25 of the game to post a 35-27 victory over the George McDougall Mustangs. This was one of the best come from behind wins in team history. It was a tremendous character win for the young Cowboys squad. Running back Roy Outh, coming back from an injury, had a strong game scoring a 75 yard touchdown. Senior slotback, Alen Cekic, had a game for the ages, scoring four touchdowns. Blair Rota converted all five touchdowns. Congratulations to the offensive and defensive lines for excellent games. Senior, Reid McRuvie was a dominant force on both sides of the ball. Next up for the Cowboys is a tough playoff game with the Springbank Phoenix, on Saturday. Best of luck to the team.
It was a tough ending for the girls soccer season this past week. After a 5-0 loss against Cochrane at home, the Lakers faced Bow Valley in the quarter-finals of playoffs. The team was up 1-0 at the half with a phenomenal goal by Sharnae Sedres who fired a shot from 25 yards out. Bow Valley tied the game with a free kick and managed to score a late goal to win the match 2-1. Congratulations go out to the team who has shown significant improvement over the past two seasons. This team was a very strong defensive squad. Coaches Henry Faucher and Gary Mitschke are optimistic for continued growth and success for the team in the coming years. Thanks to the coaches for their time and expertise this season.
